The Patriots used five hits and an error in the first inning. Issac Tijerina had an RBI single, T.J. Martin singled up the middle and then Will Allen had a three-run double and Garrett Machacek had an RBI single to chase HSU starter Stewart Person and make it 5-0. Jake Ashley added a sacrifice fly later in the inning.
After a two-out walk in the sixth the Patriots received a Jake Ashley triple and an RBI single by McCain to make it 8-0. Allen had an RBI triple in the seventh and Machacek to put the run-rule into effect.
Jay Hiller had two of the Cowboys' six hits. HSU hit into four double plays in seven innings. Martin had three hits for UTT and Allen drove in four runs.
The Cowboys are now 19-19 on the year. The Patriots are now 32-9 on the year. HSU must win two games on Saturday, just like last weekend, to continue its season.
